ebay has sellers (authorized ATT dealers ?)
with new data only plans for tablets, hotspots etc..

they are charging/selling the setup ... fees range $25 - $44
the plan is unlimted 4G lte data $29.99 month

BYO device, BYO new SIM card for device

they setup the account and put it in your name, then you pay ATT every month, i belive i read 'prepaid' will have to double check

also some sellers with 'plans for truckers' $60 month unlimted data..
these are all data only no voice no text

here is one link ATT unlimited data $29.99


another one

I think I'd be asking ATT about this first. With so many English errors in those ads I'm real skeptical.

that would be like asking Verizon about the $5-$15 3g data plans

any store rep is going to say it doesn't exist

but just about anybody with an ATT ipad will tell you $29.99 data
is/was an option when they got their ipad from att
in fact i think it was a requirement you had to get the data plan when you got the ipad on payments from att

it would not surprise me, if ATT had these ph# data plans allotted to ipad sales, and did not get the number of expected sales
and they have been released to the volume dealers to get them sold and active before the next quarterly earnings statement

10-1 they are either scams or lots of hidden costs that you only find out about after you buy.

Yes, there are some cheap tablet options...if you already have a $200/month plan for your phones.

There is a thread here about Mobly Administrative Fees (AT&T plans)

I think you might want to read it as well.

As far as I can ascertain, using a mobile hotspot with this unlimited plan appears to be exploiting a loophole? Ebay sellers apparently set these accounts up using info meant for a tablet device. Once the account is activated by AT&T, the SIM also then works in their hotspots. At least for now? As the user account was meant for a tablet?

There is no mention on AT&T website of an unlimited 4G LTE $29.95 monthly plan for hotspots. Only for tablets - with automatic monthly billing.

Another question is whether Ebay is shutting seller accounts down who offer this plan? Notice that all these sellers have relatively few ratings?

On this forum advise I bought MI-FI modem with unlimited data from Calyx Institute.
Paid $500 for 1st year and it suppose to be $400 for following year.
My first year end 4 months ago and the modem still works.
It is using Sprint for coverage and it did work pretty well in 95% areas I camp in.
Got the T-shirt too.
